I was in Target on Saturday and the store was not only crazy busy (I was wondering if there was a Pre-Black Friday sale going on by the amount of people there), but the store was a mess. Not like employees being lazy and not cleaning, but like crates and pallets filled with boxes to be unloaded and then displayed…presumably with Christmas decor.
I’ve been seeing so many people in IG tearing down all the fall decor and throwing up all the Christmas stuff – part of me wants to join in on the fun, but the realist in me knows two things about that scenario: a) I will get tired of all the decor up and begin missing my clutter-free home (which is not at all clutter free because we have a one-year-old) and b) Ruby will be into everything! I have a feeling our tree will have a lot of ornaments carefully placed out of her reach.
Regardless though, I’m ready for some Christmas music. I know. Maybe just instrumental.
I’ve been planning out our grocery list and menus so that they are ready for pickup on Fridays for about three weeks now and it is awesome! Totally gives me my Sunday back and my Monday as well, which is great because we started school last week!
I’ve been adding A LOT of Thanksgiving recipe ideas to our Pinterest board – so if you’re looking for ideas – head there! Several have diet restrictions, too, so there should be options for everyone.
With that, I hope you all have a great week. It is only supposed to rain for two days this week (Hallelujah!), and I’m hoping to get the kids outside to help me rake some leaves. We’ve had a few rainy wind storms here and all the leaves are pretty much down now. Bummer – they are so pretty on the trees…not so much in the yard.
